CLRMayWelcome to the Candlelight Reads Summer Begins Blog Hop! I’m glad you’ve joined me here in the little beach town of Pajaro Bay.

The little village of Pajaro Bay is a tourist town on the central California Coast, where the sun, the beach, and the warm, relaxing atmosphere attract people from all over.

The latest book releases from the world of Pajaro Bay are a set of short mystery/romance stories. Each little 99¢ story is complete on its own, and each stars a pet who figures into the mystery.

The first two are My Funny Valentine and Beach Blanket Bijou. In My Funny Valentine, a little street poodle named Strudel the Poodle falls on some hard times, but a man and woman come to her rescue, save her owner, and find love. It’s lighthearted and fun, and it’s the perfect length for reading during your lunch hour or with your afternoon cup of coffee.

Tell me about your favorite summer escape in the comments below. Do you like to relax in the back yard, or take a trip? Vacation or stay-cation? Post a comment below before midnight Pacific time on May 25, 2015. I’ll be giving a $5 Amazon gift card to one commenter picked at random. Be sure to check back and see if you won the prize!
